I live in a quaint craftsman-built 1945 house with wainscoting, crown molding and arched doorways only a 1.5 mile walk to downtown Durham. Bordering the neighborhoods of Trinity Heights & Trinity Park, the Ellerbe Creek Trail is a stone’s throw from the house as well. Filled with antiques, albums and art, I also live with a pair of husbuns (brother pair of rabbits) named Sorghum and Bunny Blue. See if you can spot Sorghum in one of the photos!
Because I live with two, sweet rabbits, there is sometimes hay on the floor. Eclectic with loads of character, I cannot promise a spotless house, rather a warm and house reminiscent of your grandmother's.
I have a big back yard with sitting area and trees, a compost pile, and side garden. The owner of the house lives in the basement and a longstanding friend and theater artist lives in the apartment in the rear of the house. We are a communal house of sorts.

I have two rabbits that live in a hutch and enclosed pen in the living room. Depending on your interest and length of stay, I might be amenable to rabbit care in exchange for discounted room and board. I also travel a decent amount, so from time to time, my place may be available in its entirety. I work a normal(ish) nonprofit job during the daytime hours, so I most likely won't be home to welcome you. I am also an early riser and wake with the sun.
